90 kilometres north of Katherine is the gold rush town of Pine Creek, a treasure trove of heritage bush buildings and mining sites. Established in the late 1800s, echoes of the gold rush days are still evident in the historic Pine Creek Settlement. Gold was discovered at Pine Creek in 1871 by construction workers on the Overland Telegraph Line. Many of the original buildings still stand, allowing travellers to step back in time and soak up some of the old pioneering spirit.
